GraphicsPath.IsVisible(): Unexpected Results

P: n/a
/*
GraphicsPath.IsVisible() gives unexpected results. I fill a
System.Drawing.Drawing2D.GraphicsPath-object with PointF-structures
that define the unit-square (0,0), (1,0), (1,1) and (0,1). Then I
test 3 different PointF-structures to see if they fall inside the unit-
square and the results are clearly wrong:

Point(-0.2, -0.2) falls inside the unit square... WRONG!!!
Point(0.2, 0.2) falls inside the unit square...
Point(0.7, 0.7) falls outside the unit square... WRONG!!!

It seems that the float numbers get rounded to the nearest integer, but
that is not what I want.

GraphicsPath objects do indeed convert floats to integers. Oops on the part
of the GDI+ team eh?

Is this sloppy enough to call it a bug?
